weather and some warm weather. where did august go? it's been so chilly these past couple -- i don't want to say chilly but relatively speaking temperatures running 10 degrees below normal for today. so that is quite a bit and it is feeling a little cool out there. 69 that's what we're looking at right now in the city. we have 62 up in the poconos. 72 in atlantic city. the shore has been affected the most. they actually saw falling temperatures through the day with the winds coming in from the east. it is going to stay relatively cooler tomorrow as well on the shore with a bit of a breeze coming out of the north. that's going to keep temperatures in the mid 70s along the coast. so a better beach day but certainly not the best. temperatures get warmer through the week. tonight we are looking at mainly dry conditions. still have a few scattered showers out there. they'll wind down by 9:00 o'clock and on to decreasing clouds. that sets up a spectacular sunday, again, a little bit breezy on the shore but still a nice beach day and then monday
6:49 pm
through friday this dry period continues. we finally get back to the august heat. temperatures will actually get close to 90 i think on wednesday and thursday. we could be making a run for the 90s which would be the second time we've done that this month. we've only reached 90 degrees one day so far. in the month of august. satellite/radar still showing this broad area of showers that's moving over this city. it's starting to wind down but we still have these disturbances that are coming through. right now the heaviest showers you can see are through east goshen, philadelphia is looking at light drizzle right now. and then coming out of the trenton area moving in through medford, pickin picking up a pry good shower. so these are going to start to -- they'll continue to push to the south and sort of fade out. i'd give it until 9:00 o'clock then you can probably get rid of umbrella for the rest of the evening and just the clouds that we'll be dealing with until about midnight before those start to decrease as well. so here's a look at fox future cast. you can still see by 9:00 o'clock we have a few spot

showers we'll call it 11:00 o'clock it's mainly clouds and then they start to decrease. so by tomorrow morning, you wake up. the clouds mainly are hanging on to our northwest. but by nine, 10:00 o'clock everybody is in the sunshine zone. we are looking at sunshine all across the board for the bulk of tomorrow with nice comfortable temperatures and low humidity. so a really nice finish to the weekend. the tropics though they are starting to heat up. tropical depression number four if it is gets named and it looks like it will be a tropical storm by sunday it will be tropical storm cristobal it's over the turks and caicos packing winds at 35 miles per hour. we have warnings out for the bahamas. if you are traveling keep in mind those models are pushing it to the southern edge of florida and some of them are even taking it to the east up the coast. tomorrow, though, let's focus on that weather. temperatures will be in the low 80s in the city. 75 in the poconos the and the shore going to the phillies game 75 degrees. a big difference from what you
